Ang is truly a gem and being around her is like soaking in 1,000 rays of sunshine all at once while sipping on a tasty mint mojito on the beach. She’s always kind to everyone around her and see’s the good in other women which can be hard to do unless your a confident person. I really try and be more like her in every way possible.
The last few days leading up to this shoot was rough, it meant dealing with one of her girls getting a last minute virus that made her skin break out in a red blotchy rash and the stress of that coupled with all the family events she had going on that week was a little overwhelming. We thought about cancelling the family shoot all together and go with the original plan of shooting her second eldest, Gwen for her baptism but I’m sure glad we decided to capture them all. What a dream family. I’m honored you asked me dear friend. xo
We truly had the best time finding a new beach to visit each day, visiting the local Carlsbad farmers market, and stopping by the park for a swing here and there. It’s was the most laid back trip we’ve ever taken. I used to think it was necessary to bring her to all the big parks and attractions but I’ve come to realize she’s the happiest in the most simple settings. Just sticking our toes in the warm sand was enough to make us all content.
I’m sure you’ll notice there aren’t many photos with me in them. Don’t worry that’s normal when you’re the one always holding the camera, in fact most days I’d prefer it that way!
This was such a fun shoot I did while mentoring with Kaity Braswell. She was schooling me on special effects makeup. I was teaching her how to use her camera. What a talented, special girl she is, just take a look at this gruesomely beautiful masterpiece.
Kevin and Nicole are so sweet. They both radiate so much love. Their in home photo shoot was filled with laughter and was a lot of fun.
